Light Chicken Salad


Rob and I love this light chicken salad recipe because it allows for use of the rest of your rotisserie chicken. If you buy a rotisserie chicken you can usually get a few meals out of it. Remember the “Joya Salad“, we used one breast of chicken to feed 2-4 (along with all the other fabulous and filling ingredients in that salad) and then used the remainder of the white meat for this delicious chicken salad recipe. It makes for a quick lunch or dinner in the form of a sandwich, lettuce wraps or stuffed in pita bread!



Chicken breast and thigh meat, cut into small cubes
3/4 fuji apple, cubed
1/4 red onion, finely chopped
1/4 cup slivered almonds (honey roast from trader joes are fabulous!)
1 tablespoon mayonnaise
2 teaspoons dijon mustard
touch of honey


Combine the chicken, apple, red onion and almonds. In a separate bowl, whisk mayo, dijon, honey, salt and pepper together. Stir into chicken mixture until well combined. It will be on the dryer side. You can of course always add more mayo if thats your thing! Hope you enjoy!
